Report: Hull City U23s 2-1 Bristol City U23s

City could not complete another marvellous comeback as they suffered a 2-1 defeat away to Hull City.

Luke Williams' youngsters were 2-0 down shortly after half-time, with George Nurse's late strike only a consolation.

The Tigers took the lead in the Professional Development League clash through Liam Edwards as he cut inside before striking the ball into the corner of Jojo Wollacott's goal.

The City keeper would do well to deny Edwards from scoring again from close range, before Robbie McKenzie saw an effort cleared off the line but Tom Powell found the back of the net with an effort seven minutes into the second period.

City were presented with an opportunity back into the match when the referee judged a handball in the Tigers box and pointed for a penalty, but Will Mannion guessed correctly by diving to his left to keep out Cameron Allen's spot-kick.

Nurse's effort 15 minutes from the end was neatly tucked into the corner but Williams' Robins were unable to replicate their Birmingham City heroics and find a late equaliser.

City: Wollacott, Turner-Williams, Ali, Bakinson, Smith, Parsons, Richards, Akpobire, Smith, Allen, Nurse. Substitutes: Nurse, Sainsbury, Harrison, Hall.
